Based in Rockford, Illinois, Sock Monkey Sound is a music and culture podcast. We have conversations about the state of music and culture in our world, picking apart musical genres while exploring the boundaries of our own perceptions and taste. Notable guests on our podcast have included Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers/Archers of Loaf), Hutch Harris (The Thermals), David Bazan and Dan Deacon, as well as members of The Dandy Warhols, Superchunk, Built To Spill, The Dismemberment Plan, Tokyo Police Club and many more.
Eric Bachmann started his music career playing with the indie rock quartet Archers of Loaf in the early nineties and continued on with his solo project, then band Crooked Fingers. Archers of Loaf have recently reunited to tour many throughout 2011 while Crooked Fingers will release a new album in the fall of this year.
